Welcome to this week's event-planning EaterWire:
PEARL DISTRICT—Peruvian restaurant Andina teams up with self-described "luxury brand" Numanthia for a five-course wine dinner this Thursday, May 23. The meal features a menu designed around three of Numanthia's varieties from Toro, Spain, as well as a passed appetizer course paired with Ruinart Blanc. For wine nerds, Moët Hennessey director of education Seth Box and Andina's in-house sommelier Ken Collura will lead a discussion about high-end wine. Reservations are $80, not including gratuity, and are available by calling the restaurant at 503-228-9535.
CENTRAL EASTSIDE INDUSTRIAL—The eastside's ENSO Winery celebrates its two-year anniversary this weekend with a "Fiesta Friday" on May 24. Owner/winemaker Ryan Sharp will pour the spot's current releases while the folks at Taco Pedaler dole out tacos; a celebration on Saturday will see the release of three new wines, including the Mourvèdre Reserve. More information here.
NW/ALPHABET DISTRICT—Wildwood chef Dustin Clark experiments with Chinese-American food during a "Mix.Sip.Grub" cocktail party this Saturday, May 25. The casual event, from 4-6p.m., will feature a half-dozen passed appetizers (like Clark's takes on char siu steam buns, Mongolian beef tartare, and shrimp fried rice) paired with themed cocktails by bar manager Ryan Csanky. Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door, all-inclusive. Advance tickets are available by emailing here.
